To stop your toes from clashing with the stay end caps, the Full Metal fenders / mudguards use a single stay design that is kept higher on front fender than a double stay type. It made low speed manoeuvring easier, although there was still toe overlap on my bike but that's the bike and not the mudguards fault. If you’re in the market for a set of ‘proper’ mudguards then buy once and buy right would be our advice – and the Portland Design Works Full Metal Fenders are about as good as mudguards get. The fact that full-length mudguards can only be fitted to frames with the necessary mounts and clearance does limit them, but there are plenty of bikes designed to accept them. Most common are those that fall into the touring/Audax category, with a variety of frame materials including the most common: steel, titanium and alloy. It’s also possible to buy a carbon fibre frame with the necessary eyelets and clearance for these mudguards.

The best guards are the longest and work at all speeds. If you’re riding slowly, mud comes off the trailing edge of the tyre and is thrown upwards, but as speed increases it’s thrown further forward and you eventually ride into this spray. Having a mudguard that covers the full arc of mud trajectory is the best option. Clip-on mudguards are a good alternative if you foresee taking the mudguard on and off, or if you only plan to use them for group rides. These are often lighter than bolt-on mudguards. You can also look for strap-on fenders, which attach with a hook-and-loop or zip-tie style closure to your bike’s seat tube, fork, or seatpost. How We Selected Your fender choice depends on your style of bike, though the ones we've covered are primarily intended for road riding or touring. Traditional bike fenders typically provide maximum wheel coverage—these are the models you want for touring bikes, commuter bikes, and road bikes. Whether or not you want a fender on your mountain bike comes down to personal preference. Fenders for mountain bikes will be shorter and accommodate for suspension and more varied riding terrain than their counterparts intended for other types of bikes. MaterialThe front mudguard will not only protect you but can keep the worst of the mud off your bike water bottles & cages. Mudguards for Hybrid Bike Threading your mudguard through a rim brake calliper isn't always a simple task, and must be considered when investing in a set. Some fenders are designed to split at this point to offer full-length coverage on race bikes. Which length and shape mudguards do I need? Mountain bikes, because of the huge variety of design thanks to factors like suspension and huge tyres, need a mudguard fitted very high above the wheel. The solution is a rear mudguard that clips onto the seatpost so the height above the wheel can be adjusted, and a front mudguard that's attached to the down tube. Wiggle and Chain Reaction Cycles’ LifeLine components brand makes inexpensive mudguards for bikes with the necessary bolts and these clip-on guards for those without. They have quality stainless steel fixtures with bolts to fix them to the stays, making them easy to set up and adjust.

The guard is pre-folded into a V-shape and is simply secured by inserting one end under your saddle (it works with any standard saddle). Requiring zero tools and only a modicum of intelligence, at 38cm long, this lightweight option offers pretty limited protection against road gunk. Think mudguards aren't cool and that they'll spoil the lines of your bike? Think again. Even professional cyclists fit mudguards to their training bikes through the winter. There are three widths available, and these 37mm wide mudguards are able to accommodate up to a 30mm tire. They looked in proportion when using a 28mm tire and there was a good amount of space to the side of the tire. With that extra long coverage, our reviewer found that the Bontrager NCS fenders/mudguards offer more protection than many other ‘full-length’ mudguards. The rubber mudflaps at the ends of fenders further add to the length and help reduce road spray for your feet or friends, but these aren’t as long as we see on some other mudgaurd sets.Crud Products XL Front Fender 6. Crud Products XL Front Fender Pricey but worth it if you need to remove/attach frequently Generally speaking, there are three types of gravel mudguard: short-coverage clip-on mudguards (available for either the front or, more commonly, the rear), full-coverage clip-on mudguards and full-coverage mudguards that require eyelets. It’s a design that makes fitting and removing the guards themselves a doddle. There’s no need for tools or fixing mounts, and by following the easy-to-understand instructions provided on the box, both mudguards can be in place within minutes. The Pacific Northwest is famous for its wet weather, so it's no surprise that Portland Design Works makes some of the best fenders out there. Made from anodised aluminium, the PDW Full Metal fenders offer full wrap coverage and laser-etched graphics.

There are a few options to choose from when it comes to mudguards, and which of these is right for your bike depends on the amount of protection you're needing - as well as what will practically fit your bike frame. Whether you opt for short-coverage mudguards for low weight and ease-of-use, or long-coverage mudguards for maximum protection, is largely down to personal preference, where you’re riding and who you’re riding with. Mudguards are also a vital courtesy on group rides. Sit directly behind a bike that’s not fitted with mudguards on a wet ride and you’ll soon realise just how much water tyres can spray up. A long rear mudguard, preferably with a flap, keeps spray out of the face of the rider behind you. Many clubs and riding groups demand mudguards over the winter. The other advantage of these mudguards is that they offer the most protection to the bicycle. They keep all the water and mud away from the rim brake callipers (if your bike has them), which really don't like being dowsed in gritty water, and it's the same for the front derailleur. They also keep water away from a saddle bag and rear light that you might have attached to the saddle/seatpost, so that's another plus for mudguards. Bike fenders are great for rainy or muddy rides, and can be popped on and off depending on conditions. There are several varieties of fenders to choose from, with models intended for different attachment points, sizing, and varying styles of bike. There are smaller, lighter models as well as more full-coverage ones, depending on conditions and your preferred style of riding. Some bikes come with fenders, and others you’ll have to buy aftermarket and install yourself.Having said that, even clip-on long-coverage mudguards aren’t as easy to fit as many short-coverage options. Also, because they tend to fit closer to the tyre than short-coverage guards, you may need to be more cautious of trail debris. The worse the conditions you ride in, the more you’re likely to benefit from long-coverage mudguards.
